About me

Hello, I'm Arron and I have 13+ years of experience in mental health.

My passion and work has always revolved around mental health. I made it a goal of mine to be able to promote and encourage peoples well-being. I am a very spiritual guy, I enjoy music, mindfulness, cooking, walks on the beach and seeing family.

I offer you a free conversation to see if counselling is right for you.

You can call or email myself to set up an initial session; here we can talk about what you want to get out of counselling and your expectations. If you're happy to continue following the initial consultation, I can set up a second session, and arrange to see you in the same way moving forward.

I work in a Person Centred Approach, meaning i will focus on your thoughts, feelings, patterns of relating to help understand your life through your experiences, to gain a better understanding of how to move forward with your life. The therapy relies on the quality of the relationship between the counsellor and the client. This is sometimes called a ‘way of being’, with the counsellor demonstrating what is known as the core conditions, which form the basis of the relationship. 

I welcome any questions about counselling or mental health, so please do not hesitate to get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
